Hmm: Nigerian Gov’t Says All Boko Haram Camps Gone by New Election Day

Nigeria’s National Security Advisor has said the date of the country’s general election, which has been postponed until March 28, will not be moved again and that all known camps belonging to the armed group Boko Haram will be destroyed in the next six weeks.

“All known Boko Haram camps will be taken out. They won’t be there. They will be dismantled,” Sambo Dasuki told the AFP news agency on Monday. “Those dates will not be shifted again,” Dasuki said when asked if the polls, initially scheduled for February 14, could be pushed back further.

Dasuki said he believed the new military co-operation agreed two weeks ago between Nigeria and its neighbours – Cameroon, Chad and Niger – will prove decisive against Boko Haram.
